    Tip: add “reduce motion on / off” before and after the “open app” input in each shortcut to have a subtler transition

    Really nice tiered overview of home screen customization options, Marques. Just signed up and will be checking out some of your other videos. I switched last month from Android to iOS. There are things I certainly like about iOS but I am TOTALLY missing the ease and variety of customizability I had with my Android. I SO hope Apple gets their act together and starts allowing for this.

    I remember the very first (and only) iPhone I had, the iPhone 5S, I found out I could kind of customize apps through some Safari shortcut or something. It was completely inconvenient, but it felt special to me. I don't even remember how it worked now, but I remember having these ugly icons only because it was different than what it came with. Those were the days.

    With the Siri shortcut you can have the apps open without the Siri shortcut app. They also can still have the notification circle. I have three apps with custom shortcuts that I’ve been using ever since Siri Shortcuts became a thing and they never needed to open up the shortcut app when I wanted to open up the app.

    Can you freely arrange icons on the screen ? Like placing a single icon in the lower part of the screen, and another single icon in upper row on the screen, middle upper part. If not, are there plans for that ? Because you can do that on MacOS and you can of course do that on Android, Windows, and every other operating system.

    There might be another way to do this. On iOS a URL can open any app and it can have an icon and go on Home Screen. Maybe there is a was to make these shortcuts and add to Home Screen. Like using backup/restore and edit the .db file or use iMazing or something

  • Walter A Strong

    Hi Marques. Just so that I am clear say I am level 3. Would like to have all icons minimalist. Considering purchase the icon Traf collection. Do I need to customize each icons individually and that each time I use an icon I’ll "pass" by shortcuts in order to be able to use custom icons? Really enjoy your videos. Peace.

    can you make the home screen have empty space? I'll get excited for customization of the apple screens when you aren't forced to fill it up from the top left first and can put folders, icons, and widgets wherever you want. You know, the bare minimum in customization that has existed on every other electronic device/computer in the world for the last three decades

  • Sebastian Schultz

    Just spent 4 hours customizing my home screens and it looks amazing... The series shortcut pop up is gone. They updated it. BUT it does drain your battery quite a bit. So yeah my iphone looks way nicer... But im finding i cant even get a full 12 hour day of consistent usage on a full charge. If you read this, you might want to hold off. Im not sure if it is worth-it yet.

      @Samoel Filho saying "Android is a buggy system" shows that you don't know much about the OS. At least it shows that you don't know that it preforms differently on different devices and with different setting or builds. And all of this is because Android allows you to have different phones settings and builds unlike apple

People were always like “wow… you are soo organised! it’s all in alphabetical order!!”… But iOS 14 exposed my laziness to the world. And I hate you for that, Apple.

    Almost none of these tips applies to the new SE Second Generation. Like tapping on the three buttons at the bottom of the home page does not give me an option to change the look. Or selecting different sizes for the weather app widget because there actually is only one size. I was hoping these things would be the same as in the video. On the other hand, I can open my SE with my fingerprint even when my mask is on so all is not lost. Still, I like your videos for other stuff and just watching you talk is really calming.

      Joshua Greve 2 years ago

      @Ian Grams great way to put it. As an Android user, I love this. Look, one thing Ng they did that is different and super cool is the ability to save different homescreens. My understanding is that you can use Shortcuts to automatically set homescreen X when you arrive at a certain location or for certain days. So, you get to work and the widgets and apps are geared toward your needs then, you get home, different. Android doesn't do that to my knowledge. I hope they copy.

    • Joshua Greve

  • Arizen
    Arizen Year ago

    This is cool and thanks, however it is still pointless until we find a way to get that little red corner number. Not knowing you have a new whatsapp message is not worth the changed icon. Plus the whole thing works around 80% of the time and resets when you restart the phone. Also, doing this for camera freezes the camera every time on opening for 0,5s.

    I bet I am not the only one taking screenshots of each icon to then apply them to shortcuts instead of paying $28. Totally worth it!!

    You can also toggle on "reduce animations" in the settings so the shortcut app popping up is less noticeable. Helps for now!

      wait for 14.2 or is it 14.3 anyways the recent update removes that shortcut app opening to run shortcut. it is already implemented in beta release. it will be instant

    Pro tip: set “reduce motion” on and the transition is much faster with the shortcuts

    The only thing I miss is rearranging the icons any way I want... the bottom, the left bottom corner, etc. Like common this is a really basic feature :V

    On opening the shortcuts app , just turn on reduce motion and it will jump right to what you want to get too!

  • Jenny Zina Tavares

    I've been a iphone user for several years but still miss the Android launchers. I used the mlauncher on the today's view but can't use it for 14.6. I particularly liked that I could open indiviual facebook pages from today's view but can't find anything from apple that does the same. I tried to make several shortcuts to individual pages but they all open to the same page. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    The home screen one where you just have the dock has been around for a long timely iPhone 6 can do that.

    I’m a software engineer and I’m fine staying at level 2. Level 3 feels very gimmicky to me. If we can ever do it natively without shortcuts (maybe we never can) then I’ll go up a level

    • Ja Waring

      every type of "customization" on Apple devices feels gimmicky because it is gimmicky. They don't want you to have that customization. I half expect they're doing it all poorly on purpose to make their users think "Wow all this customization is hard and finicky, I'll just trust apple to make the decisions for me" and further drive home the idea that Apple knows what's best and that the world of customization you find on Android devices is too hard to understand, clunky, and buggy to every try and make the switch.

    Man, if only these widgets were interactable. The old iOS widgets were interactable, I don’t know why Apple decided to make the new ones purely visual.

      AbuBakr Akram like you said, the only ‘interaction’ widgets can have now is a ‘link’ which informs the main app what part of the app to open or show. And it’s even more limited for the small widget size - it is only allowed to act at a single button; you can’t have four options that you choose from in that size. The older widgets in the today view in iOS 13 and below supported having buttons which did something without opening the app (such as like playing or pausing audio for google home) but now it would always cause the app to open. A good example of this limitation is how in the past the iOS reminders widget used to let you mark off completed items, not it doesn’t; all it does is open the app.
